15 Minute drill
On one half of the ice, have the pylons staggered [see diagram], one line will be approximately at the edge of the circles all the way down the ice and the other line will be approximately 3 feet from the boards, on the other half of the ice put pylons in a straight line approximately 4 feet apart.
On skill days, it is very important to have a coach that can demonstrate the drills.
Prior to starting the drill bring the players over to your drill board to explain the drill. Once the players have seen the drill drawn out and explained, they go to their starting place, and you have a coach demonstrate the drill while you again explain it to the players.
The players will line up behind the red line on the boards behind the net. On the whistle player 1 will start skating forward toward the first pylon, [see diagram], and do a 2 foot glide turn toward the second pylon, at the second pylon, he will do a 2 foot glide turn heading toward the third pylon and so on all the way down to the far end of the ice.
Once at the far end of the ice the player will receive a pass from the coach standing in the corner with pucks, after the player receives the pass he skates to the net to take a shot. After the shot is taken the player goes to the second group of pylons. He will then skate as fast as he can through the pylons, in a slalom type manner, until he gets to the end of the pylon pattern. The player then looks to the corner, where coach will be with the puck, passing it to the player who goes to the net and takes a shot.
After the shot the player goes into the line he started the first drill to repeat the drill again.
Once each player has gone through the course two times, it’s time for a water break.
